Join the IOBA

It is a sad fact that since its closure in 1995 the Indefatigable as we know it is no more. However, you can help keep the memories and all that the school stood for alive by joining the Indefatigable Old Boys Association.

Membership stands at a tiny percentage of the number of boys who benefited from her. So please get involved and join up.

As of the 2022 IOBA AGM

IOBA Membership
At the 2022 AGM, members voted to remove the IOBA membership
fee of £15 per annum. You can, therefore, now become a member of the
association for free.

We do, however, recognise that many new and existing members may still
wish to make an annual donation to the association. Should you wish to do
so, please use the form and tick options 2 or 3.
